After enjoying a sponsored 1st six pupillage with East Anglian Chambers from April - September 2015 while employed by eastlaw at North Norfolk District Council Louise returned to us for a 3rd six working pupillage in April 2016 until invited to become a full member of chambers from 1st August 2016.
A law graduate of Nottingham Trent University and selected to represent City Law School at the National Criminal Trial Competition in May 2009, Louise spent several years in non-legal employment before joining eastlaw (the award-winning in-house legal team at North Norfolk District Council) in 2013. There she advised both the Council and external clients, including other councils and housing associations, on various matters of local government law such as housing, anti-social behaviour, licensing and planning.
Louise has appeared before the Residential Property Tribunal / First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) and during her second six was regularly instructed to appear in the Magistrates and County Courts across the south eastern circuit. She has a particular interest in cases involving anti-social behaviour and has advised and acted for both local authorities and housing associations in possession proceedings and in obtaining injunctions (with and without notice) and closure orders.
As a result of her time in the public sector Louise is well aware of the pressures faced by these organisations and is therefore able to give creative and practical legal advice.
